Pooley 2015 Single Vineyard Cooinda Vale Pinot Noir
Winery : Pooley Wines
95 POINTS : JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
Rich and bright colour. Mouthwatering with fine aromatics of cherry and rose and hints of spice. Savoury grittiness to bounce off the rich, ripe fruit but it finishes with appealing glycerol/silkiness. First class pinot.
Pooley is a well-established, family-run Coal Valley producer. Cooinda Vale is the name of the original vineyard site, on the banks of the Coal River, six kilometres north of the town of Campania. The vineyard was established in the 1970s.
Vintage 2015 was a lovely one in Tasmania with a crop of perfect proportions, neither too big, nor too small. The wines are aromatic, balanced and harmonious.
